Saw Star Trek Into Darkness – the worst part about it?
The movie theater I saw it in. >_<
I liked this movie, despite everyone’s bitching about Cumberbatch being unable to play ‘Khan’. He pulled it off because he wasn’t playing ‘Khan’ from the series and second movie. I thought the scenes between Kirk and Spock were poignant; I heard some crying in the audience during that one scene…I won’t spoil.
It was nice to get away today. I’d been sidelined last week by an inflamed pancreas (stemming from my abdominal injury the month before!) and I’ve been working at the bank a little more than usual, due to a vacationing teller. The final month of May is going to be more of the same, as another employee goes on vacation. 0_0
I caught the finales of some of my favorite shows (Dr Who was fucking amazing–of course John Hurt is the new Doctor and why not!). I can’t wait for Longmire, Falling Skies and I’m looking forward to new stuff like The Bridge, Low Winter Sun, and The Killing. I fell in love Defiance and The American’s this year. I also dug Vikings, can’t wait till the latters’ return. Under The Dome is also coming this summer, but I’m still so annoyed by the ending of that book, that I’m not sure if I can get into the series.
My revisions for Femitokon are moving right along, fueled by interest from an outside party. I won’t talk about it in detail here until I have more info, but I’m excited and intimidated. This isn’t comics so I’ve found that my ability to stick to a solid writing and revising schedule, is fleeting.
Zelivan Michael Harris (1986-2013) was known to most indy comics readers as ‘Zel Harris’ until Laura Carboni was published with ‘Zel’ in her name and he was forced to fall back on ‘Darkzel’. I first met him back in 2006, he was the only boy to ever be in circle Studio Plug’n Play, because neither Julia (Minako) Styrzga nor Caroline (Kheelan) Monaco, wanted to draw my Inuyasha doujinshi-scripts. ^_^
Zel was a master at anamorphic comics–and his ability to draw from script was top notch. He was a wonderful person, one of the most asexual people I ever met, and yet he graduated from doujinshi to straight up hentai…then to what most consider ‘furry porn’. Disenchanted with comics, he finished college and went on to acquire a teaching position in the South Korean town of Panju.
I was excited because the last time we spoke on FB, he was planning to return to Georgia in August–and he wanted to work with me again. =_=; I worried about him over there, with all the political shit that’s been happening, but to think something like a traffic accident would end such a beautiful and talented young man, it makes me want to cry.
